Using aliases in a filter pane

Hi,

I'm using a filter pane to filter some data by severity. I've set up a dimension = EventSeverityId. It takes values from 1 to 4, and it works as expected.

My only concern is that I'd prefer the user to see (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Other) instead of the plain numbers (1, 2, 3, 4) in the filter pane selection. Is it possible to use something like aliases? In general I'm interested in differentiate what Qlik uses internally  to filter from what the user see on the screen.

Thanks much,

Juan

Hi juan,

Try using expression in filter plane as 'Level' & fieldname.

Have a look at the Qlik Dual() function Dual - script and chart function ‒ Qlik Sense

This allows a field to have both a numeric and a text value with which you should be able to let your users select against the text value as opposed to the plain numeric value.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the answer. That involves changing the load script. Any chances of doing something to the actual configuration of the filter pane so the load script does not have to be changed?

Thanks!
